Workplace Mental Health Support Service

Remploy has recently been awarded the contract to deliver all mental health support through Access to Work (A2W)

This is a UK-wide service open to all, it works in a similar way to other A2W provision, in that the individual raises a request to A2W, which processes the application before passing it on to Remploy to deliver the support. There is generally no charge to the employer or employee.

Support is available to individuals with a mental health condition, who are absent from work or are finding work difficult. To learn more about the Remploy A2W service, please download the brochure
